    I came across this video on YouTube when I was searching for Ad-Blocker software reviews:

    The videos describes a method by which one can block Ad-servers in terminal.

    Has anyone experimented with something like this?

    Thank you in advance for the feedback!

    Editing the host file is not completely effective in blocking ads.

    I do something similar but on my DNS server to block ads. Its not as good as extensions, but it is useful for my mobile devices.
